Two New Blogging Fads: Right Here, Right Now!

14 May

As suggested by the post title, I have discovered two brand new fads that are going around the blogesphere: “25 Random things About Me” and “Name-Verbing”. Everybody else is doing it, so why can’t we? (Album title from The Cranberries) 🙂 .Don’t feel left out of the fun; feel free to post your own of these if you want!


Fad #1: 25 Random Things About Me, Allegra

1. I have a minuscule scar on my nose from when I was a baby: I fell out of my stroller.

5.  I have only read one realistic fiction book that I liked, and that was Walk Two Moons by Sharon Creech.

13. I’m always begging my parents to take me to the bookstore.

14. Whenever I visit the woods, I feel as though I’ve come home after a long vacation.

15. When I has younger, I ate so many home-grown raspberries that I got sick.

16.I secretly enjoy playing hard songs on the piano.

20. I space out about 50 times a day.

    Hi Allegra!
    Cool post! I knew some of those things but most were new. I am like you, if I get anything less than an A- I will be reduced to tears. I could also get sick on those raspberries in your yard from eating too much, they are so good!
    p.s. How did you get a email pal from Romania?

    Dominique: To get an e-mail pal, you can simply go to and sign up, then an “ad” is placed on the site for people visiting to see displaying your first name name, interests, and other optional information. Once signed up, you can safely e-mail others who have ads up, or you can wait for someone to e-mail you.
    Also, regarding your question on the post “Project Library”, I stayed up all last night to finish The Last Olympian and enjoyed in thoroughly. I am now going to find a new book to read, change the widget, and write a post about my late experiences. Thanks! 😀
